    That is a measly amount of gravy on your chippy tea.

    Lesser crimes have seen people deported from the north for that.

    Are you blind to the horrors that Chitty has unleashed on the kitchen?

    Offer graciously accepted, see you in 2022.

    In fact it might be mutually beneficial as I have a few interesting pie recipes

    It's been a learning curve over lockdown, I'm thinking of changing careers and becoming a restaurateur.

    Nice KW on both the steak and the burgers!

    To be honest, I've never fried fish, but I'm craving fish and chips so any youtube recommendations would be welcome.

    The spaghetti looks great, Chitty, well done.

    ^Maybe get some tips on Fish & Chips from Mendip, he makes it regularly at home and it always looks very good.

    ^^ He was trying to plug his channel - so a new thread every time. No point burying it here.

    Kind of like tc whenever he has an amusing pic or a shopping receipt etc. that deserves attention.

    Haven't cooked them yet but bought a few steaks while shopping today. We were talking about fat content and marbling recently, here's a decent example of what to look for. The chances of this meat being disappointing are zero unless I fuck up the cooking part

    Coincidentally enough I decided to persevere with this steak cooking malarkey, and to save Nidhogg the bother of buying and posting me up a few I picked up a couple of Australian ribeyes at Villa Market on Monday. They didn't have the marbling of HW's steak, and to my immense pissed-offness have just noticed that mine were almost double the price. But at least they were imported and last night I dusted off the skillet and was ready to go.



    I rubbed on some olive oil, salt and black pepper and left them to warm up to room temperature (well not quite as our house is baking at the moment).



    I did the veg beforehand so I could concentrate fully on the steaks when the time came, and a couple of minutes each side...



    My best yet!



    It was slightly underdone for my taste but I didn't want to overdo my daughter's smaller steak.

    But it was all good!

    Looks good, though steak definitely too 'blue' for me.

    That's more rare than blue.

    Well done, Menny, you're getting there (was that 1 minute per side?)

    The thing with steak is you can always whack it back into the pan for another minute should it not be done enough (but you cannot make it more rare if it's over done).

    Why did you go and ruin it with an egg on top? Should be in the breakfast thread.

    Not wanting to sound like a total arse Mendip but I wouldn't have bought those steaks, not enough marbling for me to open my wallet no matter what the price was. I only went to Macro to buy a leg of lamb from the meat section but after seeing those steaks, bought some of them too. If they didn't look like that I'd have happily left them in the display fridge. Sorry!

    As for the cooking thing, a sharp pointed knife inspection incision into the thickest part of the steak while it's in the pan to see where things are at is not ideal (juices escape) but works fine till you've cooked so many steaks you just know when they're medium rare, and will come up to medium during the resting time. Or as Willy says, a quick flash in the pan to get another 10 degrees of temp into them will do the trick.

    Oh well... but as I always say to my daughter, 'I don't mind if you don't get top marks... so long as you're trying hard and improving!'

    I'll get meself off to Makro today... maybe they have those fancy marbled steaks in nationwide!

    Were those steaks frozen HW?

    ^^Mate I hope they are a nationwide thing, there's 2 Macro's in Pattaya and both normally have it. The sell whole pieces of cuts like ribeye (aka cube roll), rump, tenderloin, brisket, and so on. Then they'll cut some up to sell as individual steaks, as I bought. Not frozen, possibly was while getting from West Australia to the importer in Bangkok but I realky don't know. Good prices for meat of that quality!
